Covid-19 and lock down has sadly meant the loss of tens of thousands of lives. Following a death their estate needs to be dealt with.

Lock down has resulted in long delays in obtaining the information, so the number of applications has, surprisingly, fallen. However, we have also seen the Courts and HMRC adapt new methods of working which are more effective and efficient. This Solicitor hopes these continue long after lock down is forgotten. 

Dealing with an estate and obtaining a Grant of Probate, can be a complicated process. For advice on what to do when a loved on dies, please contact our Probate team.
